There Is No Atheist Agenda

I'm sure I am not the only Christian who has grown up hearing nonChristians, particularly Atheists, otherized. Growing up in Evangelicalism, we were constantly quoting Psalm 14:1 to equate Atheism to foolishness. We were given caricatures of Atheists and told they were truthful representations of who Atheists were. And then we laughed about how someone … Continue reading There Is No Atheist Agenda

Unfollow by Megan Phelps-Roper (A Book Review)

Okay. I just put this book down mere moments ago, and I am fully enveloped by the "book hangover" effect. This book felt personal to me. Having grown up in a cult-like family, myself, where I was taught from birth that we were part of a small faithful remnant. We had all of the answers … Continue reading Unfollow by Megan Phelps-Roper (A Book Review)

Does God Really Love Me?

I was asked recently how I think God views me. Does he judge me? Does he love me? Does he accept me? And I broke into tears as I took this question in and really tried to examine it. Intellectually, yes. I believe that I am deeply loved by the God of the universe. I … Continue reading Does God Really Love Me?

Wolves Walk Among Us

When I was a very little girl of about 6, someone in my family began to exhibit the first warning signs of what would later turn into severe mental illness. My family was made up of good evangelicals who trusted our pastor to point us in the right direction. However, this pastor made a very … Continue reading Wolves Walk Among Us

Fierce By Alice Connor

Fierce by Alice Connor was the May read for my facebook group, "Faith, Coffee, and Books". Honestly? I kind of dreaded starting this one. It took me a long time to get back into reading after all of the pandemic and lockdown stuff happened. I'm still working my way through February and March's reads. In my … Continue reading Fierce By Alice Connor

Coronavirus and The End Of The World

In my home growing up, I was told to prepare myself for The Great Tribulation. The Great Tribulation, for anyone not familiar with either my work or the Last Days movement, is a doctrine within certain sects of Christianity that describes hardship in the end times. The prediction is that during this time of tribulation, … Continue reading Coronavirus and The End Of The World

Called Out From The Comfort of Certainty

I grew up in a black and white world. There was truth and there was deception; there was right and there was wrong. We knew the truth about salvation, righteousness, and sin. There was no room for questions because all of the answers had been found.  I attended various denominations throughout my life. But the … Continue reading Called Out From The Comfort of Certainty

No, It’s Not Okay To Hate Kids

A discussion came up in one of my Facebook groups recently about people who hate children. Here was my comment: Hating children is no different than hating any other group of people It’s a reflection of where that person is. They have biases that are triggered by any number of things (upbringing, culture, trauma, etc...) … Continue reading No, It’s Not Okay To Hate Kids

Growing Up in the Last Days

A key for those unfamiliar with the "last days" movement: The Rapture: the moment when Jesus appears in the sky and summons all believers around the globe to float upwards to meet Him and follow Him back to Heaven. The (Great) Tribulation: a period of 7 years during which the Antichrist will begin his reign … Continue reading Growing Up in the Last Days
